Getting a gym membership can be a daunting task, let me tell you. That’s why I put it off for two years. Once I got up the courage, it really wasn’t that scary. The sports and recreation director gave us a tour of the facility, told us all about the equipment and classes, etc. and asked us if we had any questions. I felt like VIP status as he showed us around.
After taking this job, I realized there’s a lot more in Stark County than I realized. Back in January of 2014 when I started this gig, I’ll admit I was unfamiliar with most of the county, other than the little corner I called home.
At the time I was writing this, I was planning my vacation to South Carolina. I usually prefer to have every minute of a trip planned out so that no time is wasted. I requested travel guides months in advance and started thinking about what I would want to do. It was all-consuming.
For this issue, I had the honor of preparing a Thanksgiving meal. Hats off to all you ladies and gents who make this day possible for your friends and family each year. It’s no easy task. I know how difficult and long the day can be. And the days leading up to it, for that matter.
In a world in which everyone shares everything on social media, including the #crazyAHHmazing salad they had for lunch or the beautiful sunset they saw on their relaxing evening walk, it’s almost as if you know everything that’s going on in your “friends’ ” lives.
I don’t think of myself as an artistic person—in the traditional sense, at least. Even though I work in a creative industry and I get to design most days, I still don’t feel artistically inclined. I’m not a painter, sculptor or sketcher. Give me a pen and paper and ask to me draw something, and likely you’ll be disappointed with the results. My niece knows that all too well. She recently asked me to draw her a picture. I took my time and did my best. When I handed her the finished product, she threw the paper on the ground and asked someone else to draw a picture for her. I guess she wasn’t impressed by my talents. Needless to say, I didn’t feel too artistic.
